The Bad Seed in a 1985 film directed by Paul Wendkos for ABC Television.[1][2][3][4][5] It is based on the 1954 novel by William March and is a remake of the 1956 movie directed by Mervyn LeRoy.


Freak fatal accidents force a widow to realize her precocious 9-year-old daughter was born to kill.

Detailed plot[edit]

Rachel is a 9-year-old girl who is perfection itself — unless she's crossed or challenged. Several disturbing recent incidents have led Rachel's mother Christine to suspect that her child is a latent murderess. Upon discovering that she herself is the daughter of a convicted killer, Christine becomes convinced that sweet little Rachel is a "bad seed" — an inherent killer who feels no remorse, because she doesn't know any better.
